Diagonalizable matrix A.
Must have n independent eigenvectors (in the columns of S; automatic with n different eigenvalues). Then SI AS = A = eigenvalue matrix.

Dimension of vector space
dim(V) = number of vectors in any basis for V.

Fourier matrix F.
Entries Fjk = e21Cijk/n give orthogonal columns FT F = nI. Then y = Fe is the (inverse) Discrete Fourier Transform Y j = L cke21Cijk/n.

Iterative method.
A sequence of steps intended to approach the desired solution.

Jordan form 1 = M 1 AM.
If A has s independent eigenvectors, its "generalized" eigenvector matrix M gives 1 = diag(lt, ... , 1s). The block his Akh +Nk where Nk has 1 's on diagonall. Each block has one eigenvalue Ak and one eigenvector.

Multiplicities AM and G M.
The algebraic multiplicity A M of A is the number of times A appears as a root of det(A  AI) = O. The geometric multiplicity GM is the number of independent eigenvectors for A (= dimension of the eigenspace).

Multiplier eij.
The pivot row j is multiplied by eij and subtracted from row i to eliminate the i, j entry: eij = (entry to eliminate) / (jth pivot).

Partial pivoting.
In each column, choose the largest available pivot to control roundoff; all multipliers have leij I < 1. See condition number.

Polar decomposition A = Q H.
Orthogonal Q times positive (semi)definite H.

Positive definite matrix A.
Symmetric matrix with positive eigenvalues and positive pivots. Definition: x T Ax > 0 unless x = O. Then A = LDLT with diag(D» O.

Reflection matrix (Householder) Q = I 2uuT.
Unit vector u is reflected to Qu = u. All x intheplanemirroruTx = o have Qx = x. Notice QT = Q1 = Q.

Schwarz inequality
Iv·wl < IIvll IIwll.Then IvTAwl2 < (vT Av)(wT Aw) for pos def A.

Similar matrices A and B.
Every B = MI AM has the same eigenvalues as A.

Solvable system Ax = b.
The right side b is in the column space of A.

Spectrum of A = the set of eigenvalues {A I, ... , An}.
Spectral radius = max of IAi I.

Standard basis for Rn.
Columns of n by n identity matrix (written i ,j ,k in R3).

Toeplitz matrix.
Constant down each diagonal = timeinvariant (shiftinvariant) filter.

Vandermonde matrix V.
V c = b gives coefficients of p(x) = Co + ... + Cn_IXn 1 with P(Xi) = bi. Vij = (Xi)jI and det V = product of (Xk  Xi) for k > i.

Vector addition.
v + w = (VI + WI, ... , Vn + Wn ) = diagonal of parallelogram.

Volume of box.
The rows (or the columns) of A generate a box with volume I det(A) I.
